Bienvenue!!! Welcome!!!


I'm very glad you visit my blog today. Usually, it is a french blog but today, I will try to be bilingual and good enough to be understood by everybody.
Here, I write about my quilting work and what I can do with it. I'm pretty new (only 2 years) in that world (yes, it is a great world), but I will follow every blog where I can find a new technic, tips or good informations to be better, or simply for the pleasure of an other journey. Each blog is so good for my mood. Thanks to all of you. It is also possible to subscribe to my blog and this way, I will visit yours from time to time.

Aujourd'hui, j'attends plusieurs nouveaux visiteurs sur mon blog. Vous avez sûrement remarqué le bouton ''Grow your blog'' à gauche.  En visitant le blog ''2 bags full'', je me suis inscrite pour cette journée d'échange, évènement créé pour augmenter le nombre de personnes fréquentant notre site.  C'est pourquoi j'essaierai pour la première fois d'être bilingue.  Il y aura des erreurs mais je connais assez bien les courtepointières pour savoir qu'elles feront le lien avec ce que j'écris.

Pour l'occasion, je fais un retour sur quelques réalisations de l'année dernière.  Une sorte de ''show and tell'' d'un jour.

You will find on this page today pictures of some quilts that I stitched last year.  I intend to perfect my free quilting motion this year and I will practice with those quilts stitched last year.

En janvier et février, voici mon défi:  piquer  en free motion la courtepointe
pour l'anniversaire de ma fille
I will quilt with free motion this piece in january and february
for my daughter's birthday

 
Il y a un projet depuis cet été que je travaille peu à peu à chaque semaine, c'est la confection d'une Baby Jane.  Voici quelques blocs de cousus:
 
I began to stitch the ''Dear Jane'' quilt last summer.  It's a long term project.  Here are some of them:
 
 



 
  
 

  
 

Plusieurs projets sont en cours pour 2013.  Pratiquer le piquage main libre, suivre quelques cours auxquels je me suis inscrite sur Craftsy et terminer les 6-7 dessus de courtepointe commencés.
 
Next year, I will practice the free motion quilting, follow some Craftsy courses and be sure to finish all 6-7  UFO tops.  And for sure, read many many blogs. 

 

Thank you for your visit.  Have a nice day!
Merci de votre visite.  Bonne journée et à la prochaine!

    1. Many of them are only top of the quilt. Last year, I learned how to free motion and this year, I will practice with all these tops. They will be back all done (I hope) this year on my blog. Thanks for your visit. Have a nice week!

  21. I am visiting your blog from Vicki's Grow Your Blog Hop. Your quilts are lovely. I hope to learn quilting one day soon. I have followed your blog. I want my daughter to visit your blog too. She is studying to be an opera singer. She studies French, Italian, and German. Reading your blog would allow her to practice her French. I hope you will visit my blog too. www.everydayruralty.ocm

  22. Your quilts are beautiful! Though I really love the Sesame Street quilt - I sat with my son many an hour watching that show.

    I have not been writing in my blog in a long time, and I trying to decide if I want to or not. I do love reading other blogs though.

    I will be back to see your work!

  28. I love your quilts. I have yet to do one. My Great Aunt Rose used to quilt for the family and I still have my quilt from when I was little. I always wanted to do a quilt with her but never got the chance.
    I love your Harry Potter quilt and found the Fandom in stitches site very fun!
